Build Your Business Online – Some Daily Basics
When you begin to build your business online, you really need to incorporate certain daily basics into your day so you will see improvements on a consistent basis.
Daily activity is key!
1. You want to build your business presence online.
Select two or at most three social networks that you want to use each day on a regular basis. It seems that almost weekly there is a new “Social Network” that you can join and be a part of. It’s OK to check them out – but you really need to focus on two – maybe three Social Networks and build your business presence there consistently.
Today, Facebook is almost a given – you have your personal profile and you can create a Facebook Page as well. I highly encourage you to create a Page for your business. There is no bigger turn-off on Facebook than having business posts all over your personal profile consistently – morning, noon and night. That’s what a Facebook Page is for and even then you should mix it up a bit and post interesting things that don’t revolve around your business. Once you have Facebook up and running – select another social network to work with – if you have a visual product – Pinterest, You Tube if you enjoy creating videos or you want to learn to create effective videos, Google+ as it continues to grow at a steady pace as well.
2. Start a blog – I recommend starting one with your own hosting. DreamHost.
This is a must-have item to begin strong and to build your online business. It doesn’t need to be fancy, you just need to have daily activity to get your business in front of people on a daily basis.
Write in your blog everyday! It doesn’t have to be an in-depth post, it can be as easy as something funny you found on the net. 500-700 words is best.
People will start to respond to your posts both on Facebook and your Blog.
3. RESPOND to them, this will help you build your business online in a natural way. People will get to know you, trust you and want to know more about you as time goes on.
Get to know the people who are interacting with you. Relationships can build from there – if you aren’t interacting – you aren’t building relationships, which is what building an online business is all about.
4. Read positive uplifting things daily.
You need to have a positive mindset as you build your business online. Some people will take off right out of the gate, others find slower success. It doesn’t matter which you turn out to be – all that matters is that you keep your heart and mind moving towards a positive frame of mind. Your attitude really can make or break you.
Finally – probably the most importantly thing is this:
5. NEVER stop learning.
Find a mentor. Someone that speaks to you. Learn how to build your business online from them. Read, listen or watch something they have taught daily. Don’t be afraid to listen to lessons several times. I find I often pick up on things I missed the first time or two. Their knowledge will help you build your business online.
These are just a few things you must do to keep moving forward to build your business online. The more you do these things the more natural they will become to you – just don’t give up. Too many people get started with something and then they don’t get the results they want just as they are beginning to build their business online.
Make a commitment today that to build your business online, you will work towards developing these strategies – making them fit your lifestyle effortlessly.
